I’m finding that the more I make, the more I want to make. Which is a very good place to be right now considering I have 2 quilts to finish for my nieces birthdays less than 2 weeks from now. I’m doing my best to balance house work and my main stress reliever (quilting) while doing photoshoots and having toddler time too. Mom’s never have breaks 😛
I’ve been working on learning more free motion quilt designs and I am so happy I stumbled on this one in Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walter. The sweet flowers were the perfect thing for the scrumptious quilt I’ve been working on.
I decided not to do all flowers, but to separate them with a “vining” of loops. I think it is starting to look like a very sweet quilt.
I even found a minute of two to work on my farmers wife quilt.

And of course I had a little helper this weekend. She thought mommy needed to reorganize all her fabrics so she pulled them all out for me. >_<
A few months back I started work on this sweet little quilt as a birthday gift for one of my nieces and somehow down the line it got hidden under a mound of fabric. On a side note I really need to work on organizing my stash.
Since her birthday is next month I think it’s high time I finish this one, no more late birthday gifts from this lady 🙂
This quilt is a pattern by Camille Roskelley called Dwell. The fabric is a mixture of Bonnie and Camille fabrics I had on hand and I already have a scrappy binding all ready. Now to get back to work. October is just around the corner.
I might be late to the game, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to play. 😉 A few months back I broke down and finally bought The Farmer’s Wife Sample Quilt book. So far I’ve completed a whooping 3 blocks, but it’s a start. I know it’s a sampler quilt and a lot of times people use scraps and random fabrics for those, but right from the get go I knew that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I am using a wide range of Bonnie and Camille fabrics for this quilt. I LOVE their fabrics.

It seems like I kept telling myself just one more row, just one more row. Well after doing that who knows how many times the top is finally done on my Baby Jane quilt.
As much as I loved making it I’m much happier to be done making it. This quilt has been put on the back burner so many times lately and has seen it’s way to sewing machine #2.
As the work on the Baby Jane quilt is finally winding down my work on the Honeysweet quilt is just now picking up speed.
I got everything cut and sorted. So it was just a matter of sitting down and actually quilting.
I even started saving the scraps to make a scrappy binding for the quilt once it’s done. 😉
A day that started out so chaotic finally ended on a more quiet note. I put the kids to bed and grabbed a cup of chamomile tea and sat down at my sewing table. My favorite part of the day is at night when it’s quiet and I can just relax and think about a project I’ve been wanting to work on.
I bought a jelly roll of honeysweet a few weeks ago and have been mulling over what to do with it. I finally decided to make a square in a square quilt.
So far I’ve finished a whopping 2 blocks, but it’s on its way. If all goes well I think I’ll have the front done by next week. As always more photos to come.
